Scroop's Inn
   On the north side of Holborn Hill, an inn of Serjeants, opposite St. Andrew's Church (S. 78 and 388).
   First mention: Grant to Sir Henry le Scrope of messuage in Holeburne between other messuages he had there, 18 Ed. III. (Hust. Roll 53, No.30).
   Granted to various clerks and others 37 H. VI. (I. p.m.) (Stow and Strype). Demised by the name of " Serjeants Inn " to John Scrope and others, 14 H. VIII. Purchased by John Cottingham of Richard Alington, 1568, by the name of "ScropePlace " (I. p.m. 10 Eliz. 82).
   Belonged to H. Gaynsford, 17 Eliz. (Lond. I. p.m. III. 7).
   According to Strype, the Serjeants-at-law having acquired it, the Inn was then called "Serjeants Inn" in Holborn. Afterwards when they removed in 1494 it was restored
   to Lord Scrope. Later the Inn was converted into tenements. Recently rebuilt with very good houses and enlarged (Strype, ed. 1720, I. iii. 283, and N. and Q.11th S. IV p.73).
   Called Scroop's Court (q.v.).
